Today’s project is an Everything Amazing Birthday card. The Everything Amazing birthday stamp set contains 15 photopolymer stamps and can be found in my online store.
Also, I played along with the Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge this week.
To begin, I made a card base with an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch piece of Soft Suede cardstock, scored at 4 1/2 inches. Next, I cut a 4 x 5 1/4 inch piece of Grapefruit Grove cardstock and adhered it to the card base with SNAIL adhesive. Then, I cut a circle of Terracotta Tile cardstock with the Layering Circles Dies. (I used the largest circle, 2 7/8 inchs) Afterwards, I embossed the circle with the Pinewood Plank 3D embossing folder. Finally, I adhered the circle to the card with SNAIL adhesive.
Next, I cut a 1 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch piece of Grapefruit Grove colored paper from the 2018-2020 In Color 6 x 6 DSP pack. Next, I cut a 5 1/2 x 1 3/4 inch border of Soft Suede cardstock. I adhered the two layers together and added to the card base with SNAIL adhesive.
Then, I stamped the balloon image from the Everything Amazing birthday set with Soft Suede ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Following up, I stamped the a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set with Soft Suede ink . Next, I colored the image with the Cajun Craze Combo Stampin’ Blends. Afterwards, I cut a “tag” around the image using the 1 3/8 x 3 1/4 inched Rectangle Stitched Framelits Die. Moving along, I made a border for the stamped image by cutting a 1 7/8 X 3 1/8 inch piece of Soft Suede cardstock with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Die.
Afterwards, I wanted the tag shorter and cut the stamped image piece to 2 3/4 inches and the border to 3 inches. Next, I embossed the end of the tag and border with the straight die from the Stitched Nested Labels. Moving along, I added a bow out of Linen Thread to the tag with a Mini Glue Dot. Then, I adhered the tag to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finally, I added three of the 2019-21 In Color Faceted Dots to the stamped balloon. (Terracotta Tile colored)
Next, I stamped a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set with Soft Suede ink onto a 4 x 5 1/4 inch layer of Whisper White cardstock. Then, I stamped a balloon image from the Everything Amazing stamp set in Terracotta Tile ink to the same layer. Finally, I adhered the layer with to the inside of the card to make an Everything Amazing birthday card.
